Verrazzano drew his Heckler & Koch and knelt down. The boards at the foot of the house were storm damaged and rotten. They reeked sweetly.The Damascus Threat by Matt Rees. I got this book for review from Crooked Lane Books. Here is the description from Amazon:
ICE Special Agent Dominic Verrazzano’s vigilance pays off when he uncovers a plot to launch a chemical attack in New York, but he doesn’t know what the target is or how deep the conspiracy goes. And potentially thousands of lives hang in the balance.
The only woman who could have answered his questions is murdered just before she reaches him. In her last moments, she manages to send him a single clue. It will have to be enough. Her tip leads him to Syria, where he must negotiate the treacherous alleys of the casbah in the midst of civil war to track the weapon--before it's too late. Unless it’s already too late.
Sharp as a scimitar and relentlessly suspenseful, Matt Rees's The Damascus Threat will keep readers’ hearts pounding until the very last page.
